My boy has the coolest name in the organization! He's now a Cyclone...
Yesterday tweeted: "Got a hot dog from the original Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs"

In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, "I have finished." There is a lot of satisfaction in that - Fred Lebow

Colby batting a n-t-s .400 this short season. I also learned just now
that we share a birth date which is cool coincidence.

Wouldn't that make him a bit old to be a prospect?

My boy made history yesterday being part of the first triple play
in Brooklyn professional baseball since 1949.

Saw my boy today in person for the first time. Couldn't get a very good picture as
I only had my phone in tow. Colby and Peter Alonso were really the only two BC guys
on the field today that struck me as having a professional-baseball look about them.
They both had good games and two RBI each I think.

Edgardo Alfonzo brought out the lineup card and I asked KB to guess who he was
while he had his back to us with the umps. She got a kick out of it being him and
he acknowledged her shout out to him when he returned to the dugout.

Side note: Does anyone recall hearing Woodmansee verbally pronounced? In my head
I pronounce it the way it looks -- wood-man-see. The Renegades PA guy was pronouncing
it more like wood-mans(z) or something. He was a goof-ball and I don't know if it was just
him or if it's not pronounced phonetically.

Not a lot of news on my adoptee (a word that Chrome strangely tells me doesn't
exist) except that he leads the 22-22 Cardiac Clones* with a team leading .291 AVG,
17 R and 18 RBI. Not too shabby.

Colby did not start in last night's Penn League All-Star Game but went 1-3 and
scored a run in the South's team victory. Colby was joined by two other Cyclones
RHP Harol Gonzalez (1 IP) and 1B Pete Alonso DNP). Another story about the All-Star
Game can be found in this Poughkeepsie Journal report.

Since our last report two weeks ago, Woodmansee leads the Cyclones in G-46, AB-181,
H-49, RBI-22, TB-64 (tied with Alonso), and unfortunately SO-59. His AVG has dropped
to .271 (4th).

Yeah reading a few things here and there, he and Timmy may have a pretty
high Sim Score off-the-field.

Guess my kid drink the kool-aid...
Having been around him on and off the field, he's an awesome guy, and I have nothing but respect for him and his pursuit of baseball!

Found a blurb that Colby played in two games before a torn core muscle.
Sounds painful, not much interweb coverage on him/it.

He did tweet that Stanley Cup Finals > NBA Final... but, like, no duh....

Looks like Colby (aka "Dynasty II") is going to be mostly repeating Brooklyn.
I'll be your patron saint of heartbreak.
